Dope is Dope, whether or not some government says it is legal or O.K.

If you use Dope, you are a Dope Head.  End of Story.


When Jesus was dying, He was offered some Dope on a stick to dull his pain, but He refused it.
But how many care what Jesus did?

Mat 27:48  And straightway one of them ran, and took a spunge, and filled it with vinegar, and put it on a reed, and gave him to drink.

I sort of doubt that vinegar would dull Jesus' pain.
It was more likely to insult him.

You need to study more I Bob.  Read Mark 15:23.  That stuff they tried to give Him was meant to dull the pain.

Itís like anything else. There is good use and misuse. Industrial hemp has been used for thousands of years. It was spun into fibers as far back as ten thousand years ago. It is actually one of the most useful plants on the planet. And yes, George Washington and Thomas Jefferson both grew hemp, but it is highly doubtful that they ever smoked it. It wouldnít have gotten them high if they had. The THC level is way too low despite the fact that it is the same plant. Marijuana has been bred to get people high.

When hemp was made illegal in the U.S. back in 1937 it was for reasons that had nothing to do with public health and everything to do with politics and moneyóa story too long to explain here. But in order to demonize it they knew they couldn't call it hemp. The people were too familiar with it. So they started calling it Marijuana, which was the little-known Mexican slang for the version that gets you high. And just like any other forbidden fruit, it caused awareness and temptation to spread. Canada followed in 1938 as part of an Ďinternationalí effort. An unfortunate blow to the U.S. and Canadian farmers who were the real victims at the time. Hemp has been imported ever since.

The only time hemp was allowed to be grown in the U.S. was during WWII for the war effort.

Iím sure there will be truly good medical (and further industrial) uses found. And thereís nothing wrong with that. But it isnít the panacea that is being touted at the moment. Also, the medical uses that are being examined have, for the most part, very little to do with the psychoactive elements of the plant.

Ask yourself this question, Where would I draw the line and absolutely would not attend? Maybe if it was at a "New Age" temple  where song and dance to mother earth were performed or maybe a Luciferian (Satanic) church or a thousand other scenarios. Our Father has drawn the line for us so we don't have to guess, the ongoing battle is in our mind which so easily justifies disobedience. King Saul faced a similar and common dilemma and failed, the result was not good; 1 Sam 15:22-23

And Samuel said, Hath the LORD as great delight in burnt offerings and sacrifices, as in obeying the voice of the LORD? Behold, to obey is better than sacrifice, and to hearken than the fat of rams.

For rebellion is as the sin of witchcraft, and stubbornness is as iniquity and idolatry. Because thou hast rejected the word of the LORD, he hath also rejected thee from being king.

Let the dead bury (marry) their own dead

Harsh stuff but Jesus said take up your cross and follow him. We all will pray for you as you will for us when we face our temptations.

Medical marijuana didnít help any of my friends who were sick. It apparently was not potent
enough.
The use of recreational marijuana use is all about the money. No different than alcohol or cigs.Lust
Of the flesh.
Itís starting to cause problems already and going to be chaos. Edibles include gummy bears
and a child has already overdosed on them and is in hospital. Some dogs have gotten sick
from eating pot and a child was expelled from school for smelling of pot, his parents.
The cops have no test to give high drivers except their own opinions and the cops now want to know when they can smoke it themselves. All ten provinces and three territories have their own laws and some allow smoking pot in public places. Itís so ridiculous. But then again it is Canada.
Where the laws made in the dark are made to uphold the lifestyle of every discusting sin . Itís a swill of a place.

Rom.1:32
Though they knew Godís decree that those who practice those things deserve to die,
they not only do them but give approval to those who practice them.

i have talked to people that use the cannabis directly bred for pain.  they have none of the feelings that you would expect when partaking of weed that is intended to create a ďbuzzĒ.  it was why i considered using it.  i cannot afford that at all, but need something to manage my pain when it gets bad.  right now, i am using nothing to mask the occasional pain.  i also have other issues that are priority right now that may not afford me the opportunity to use the product.

Thanks Tony.

But, still wondering. Is the "medical" kind more harmful than what most think today?

having used marijuana as recently as last september, and having used it on and off since i was a teenager, i would say that it is not something that is conducive to a strong mind, but neither is alcohol.  both can be abused to the point of destroying a life, and we know that God gave wine and strong drink for the purpose of making the heart glad, and for celebration.  i would say weed might be a little different, especially nowadays, as it has been grown to 1) be very powerful and 2) have psychotropic properties that are also very powerful, and, quite frankly, dangerous to the mind, imo.   there are strains that are bred specifically for medicinal purposes, that have lower thc properties and therefore do not have the same psychological effects.  those strains are used for inflammation, pain management, tumor reduction, those kinds of things.  the literature on the use for that is growing and mostly positive,  i have though about using that strain, as i cannot use most pain medication, as my kidneys are failing, and pain meds, specifically the NSAID class, damage the kidneys.

does any of this help?

quote]Since Cannabis is being legalized in Canada in about a week, how should it be dealt with?

Dealt with how,  could you be more specific?
For example, if someone asks you what you think about using Cannabis. Or, if you know of people interested in using it, but it may not be as safe as what the government claims.
